Storyline

Percy Nilegård has gotten in to the commercial radio business. The radio station rents premises of the fire station and its chief, the self willed Greger who's in charge of six well built firemen. One of them gets a presentation first in every episode, when we get into their special and relaxed relationship to each other. Percy is always after money and his ways to entice sponsors get more and more unconventional. We also follow the main radio host Glenn Killing with various (and often peculiar) guests. And also other shows like a reggae program, a Friday party program, teenage psychologist (and stereo fetishist) Farbror Barbro and Percy's own "Management Profile".

Reflektion kolon: the best Swedish show ever. EVER.
23 February 2007 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

Robert Gustafsson is funny. He is undeniably talented and dedicated and has a mainstream appeal which undoubtedly has helped the success of Nilecity 105.6 a great deal.

Henrik Schyffert is hilarious. His subtle, deadpan approach to comedy goes over the head of a lot of people. I find him just as funny as, if not funnier than, Gustafsson. He is Sweden's answer to Edward Norton's Fight Club character. Truly the King of Deadpan.

Johan Rheborg... well, he's a genius. Insane, but a genius. Whether he's in a red jumpsuit, clipping his toenails while pursuing a pregnant teenager over the phone to upgrade her stereo system as Uncle Barbro, or fawning himself to financial success as über-cynical Percy Nilegård, there's no doubt of his talent. He's just hilarious - and how the hell does he manage to talk with his chin jutted forward like that?

So combine the talents of Gustafsson, Schyffert and Rheborg and the result is Nilecity 105.6, the best comedy show Sweden has ever produced. Yeah, I know that's not saying much. Let me rephrase: one of the best comedy shows EVER produced. Up there with The Simpsons and Mystery Science Theater 3000. A show so funny stuff like "Family Guy" or "Friends" barely deserves to lick its shoes.

With characters like Greger and his flaming firemen, Veyron in the Ott, Sudden the sports commentator, the Horniest Man in Kungsängen, and of course Percy and Glenn Killing themselves... how can you fail? Nilecity is perfection personified. Period.
